Emerging Scholars in Interdisciplinary Studies

In February, we solicited applications from students interested in doing exploratory conceptual and applied research with a faculty mentor this summer. This program allows emerging scholars to develop interests and expertise in an interdisciplinary field of study while honing their research skills under the tutelage of a faculty mentor or mentors.

Congratulations to Summer 2014 recipients Vikram Shenoy, Alexa Preucil, Kadri Lutter and Jackie Eppinger.

Best of the Best Policy Memos

In our conversations with policy makers and the people who advise them, we have learned that one of the most important skills that students should develop, whether they want to work in public policy or in the private sector, is the construction of a concise, informative, but persuasive policy memo.

Congratulations to Felix Boakye-Afriyie, Emily Beisser, Jennifer Ohn and Raissa Sorgho whose memos were selected as the Best of the Best from UNIV 221: Bend the Curve, fall 2013. || Read their Policy Memos.
